Experiment: Confidential Content Youtube (CISPA leak?)

Doing some admin work on our Youtube Account, and did some searching and this page came up.

It reads:
! Experiment: There may be confidential content in your search results. Please do not share outside Google.

Well well well, Googly-bits. What's this? Something here seems like there might be internal issues with google. Are there training videos and tips and tricks that Google itself might be hiding?

Well, Google, we demand an explanation about this secret government conspiracy thing you have here.

Let me know in the comments what you think this is. Tin Foil Hats required.

This appears to be something that was publicly published. Doesn't matter what you search. We're #3 on the search results but it still shows that implementation.

What if this is an attempt to see how many people share it outside of Google? Technically, this blog is a Google Product, so I haven't shared it outside. So nya nya nya.

This looks like something that was made public when it should've been for internal use only. People at Google can see account information associated with the Youtube accounts like Adsense and Adwords data, as well as registered owners of corporate accounts, credit card information and what have you. This doesn't seem intentional though.

Just my thoughts.


It appears Youtube's official Twitter said there was nothing to worry about:

And it's all good to go now. I still demand some sort of explanation. CISPA is finally getting through it seems. I can already feel my 4th Amendment Eroding.
